“I learned the value of service from my father Dean who served for many years in our community, first in youth sports leagues, and later as a Councilman for the City of Troy. I have a long history of service in the Schuylerville community, particularly focused on Schuylerville’s youth. I’m very proud of my record of service and excited to have the opportunity to continue to serve for years to come.”
